PARK CITY, Utah -
For the second time in as many events, Utah State had an individual claim a tournament championship as Seokwon Jeon shot a 3-under par 68 during his final round Tuesday and won a two-hole playoff to claim medalist honors at the Utah Invitational held here at The Jeremy Golf and Country Club. Overall, Jeon finished the tournament with a collegiate-best 7-under 206 (67-71-68).
Utah State finished the Utah Invitational tied for second-place out of nine teams with a 21-over 1086 (355-259-372) as teams were allowed to compete six players and count five scores. Boise State won the tournament title with an 11-over 1076 (364-356-356) and UTEP tied USU with its 21-over 1086 as the Miners had team rounds of 352, 367 and 367.
Jeon, who defeated Boise State's Ty Travis in a two-hole playoff, becomes the second Aggie golfer in as many events to win a tournament as current senior Tanner Higham won the Boise State hosted Dash Thomas Memorial with an 8-under 205 (71-67-67) in the team's last competition on Sept. 24, 2013.
The last time an Aggie golfer won medalist honors prior to this season was back in the spring of 2004 when Cody Huot won medalist honors after carding a 4-under 212 (68-72-72) at the Peterson/Von Elm Intercollegiate in Blackfoot, Idaho.
Jeon (Salt Lake City, Utah) began the Utah Invitational by tying his collegiate low round with a 4-under 67 during his first 18 holes Monday, followed by an even-par 71 during his second 18 holes. Jeon then fired a 3-under 68 during his final round Tuesday to get into the two-hole playoff. Overall, Jeon now has three top-10 finishes in four tournaments this year.
Higham (Shelley, Idaho) finished the Utah Invitational tied for 11th-place with a 2-over 215 (70-72-73), while sophomore Brennan Coburn (Layton, Utah) finished tied for 26th-place with a 6-over 219 (71-70-78), which is also his collegiate-best 54-hole score. During his second round Monday, Coburn carded a 1-under 70 for his best-ever collegiate round.
Utah State junior Grahm Schmaltz (Kalispell, Mont.) finished in 35th-place with an 11-over 224 as he tied his collegiate-low round of 70 during his first 18 holes Monday, before carding a 7-over 78 during his second round of the tournament and a 5-over 76 during his final round. Freshman Braxton Miller (Boise, Idaho) tied for 42nd with a 16-over 229 (77-75-77) and fellow freshman Dylan Cramer (Bend, Ore.) tied for 52nd-place at 21-over 234 (81-71-82) as his even par 71 during his second round Monday was also a collegiate-best.
Utah State will conclude its fall schedule on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 27-28 when it travels to Simi Valley, Calif., to compete in the Cal State Northridge hosted Bill Cullum Invitational.
